It sounds like you want a decentralized, rather than a centralized,
version control system. 'svk' (svk.elixus.org) is a separate project
based on subversion that is decentralized -- every developer has a
private repository, and the system manages the chaotic exchange of
patches. 'arch' works the same way, as does bitkeeper. I'd recommend
you check them out.
